    Comments about Velocity 8z Pro Photo Sling Pack (Black/Gray):

    Despite the fact this is designed to carry an iPad, it fairly easily holds my 13" Macbook Pro; as long as I leave the vertical grip off my EOS 5D. As stated a 70-200/2.8 fits easily on the body and that leaves room for a couple lenses on one side. Another zoom or a coffee bottle fits on the other. Straps on the sides allow for additional expansion with accessory pockets or bags. There are adequate pockets to carry almost all needed miscellany. The only reason I am withholding one star is that there is no way to quickly secure and retrieve the camera. The quick buckles do not adequately secure the top and the zipper on this rather boxier model is a bit slow going around the corners. All in all, this is the bag I've been waiting for. This is the most comfortable way to carry this amount of gear and I've tried a few. This bag is the perfect compromise between compactness and capacity.

        I use this bag while traveling via public transit with my gear. It has lots of room, and there is also a pocket for your tablet. The best part about the Velocity bag series is that you never need to take it off. You just swing it around to access the bag. I find no faults with this bag design.

          Comments about Velocity 8z Pro Photo Sling Pack (Gray/Burgundy):

          I use this pack to carry my "light" kit which includes my Nikon D800 body, 180mm F2.8D, 85mm F1.8G, 50mm F1.8, and 24mm F2.8D lenses.

          The entire kit fits comfortably in the pack. The Sling feature makes it easy to move the pack to the front and change lenses which is central to this "light" kit. Lots of lens changes in the field. I like both my arms free when moving in the field, perhaps to carry a tripod and shoulder packs just don't work as well.

          I also like the top and front pouches for the obivious accessories.

          The main zipper is sturdy enough so that the pack can be carried for short distances by the top handle.

          Even like the Burgandy touch because it clearly identifies this pack from the Velocity 10 pack which I use for my heavier Zoom lens kit.

          The 8z is really ideal for this kit.

            This pack is going to be very useful on my up coming vacation. It is made well and a lot of thought put into the design. I would buy it again.

              Comments about Velocity 8z Pro Photo Sling Pack (Gray/Burgundy):

              I love this bag! It is very roomy and made very well. Haven't used it in rain yet but I expect it to protect my gear just fine. Nice heavy material. I have a Canon Rebel T4i and several lenses I carry depending on what I am shooting, the longest of which is a Canon 75-300mm.The bag comfortably fits that lens mounted on the camera, as well as another lens, flash and a vello wireless remote in the main compartment. There is ample room in the front pocket for extra sd cards and extra batteries.I love the sling style and it is easy to move the camera from front to back. Comfortable strap also. I haven't found anything about it that I don't like.

              Not A Good Purchase

              Comments about Velocity 8z Pro Photo Sling Pack (Gray/Burgundy):

              There is only one point of access for this case. The top. If you need to get anything out that is stored in the lower compartments, you have to remove anything that is stored in the top areas, along with the dividers. Pretty useless. Don't know how they can justify $[$] for this.

                  I've used many sling bags over the years and this is the best of them all. It's spacious, light, really comfortable AND the price is right.
